Trying to get internet connection on my ps3

I've been trying to get an internet connection on my ps3 for a couple of days now and nothing seems to be working. the ps3 manual tells me that i need a cable modem and a dsl router. i've tried that way and when i test the internet connection it tells me theres a error or something and that it is a dsl problem. i really dont know what that means. plus i tried connecting the ethernet wire from ps3 straight to the modem, it told me the same thing. all i really wanna do is play online. can you guys help me out. P.S. i have my ethernet wire that i used for my ps2, dsl router, cable modem, and internet service, do i need anything else? thanks for your time

Re: trying to get internet connection on my ps3

I once had the same problem. What i did is that i booted the modem and the Ps3 (turned both off) and then turned them on. Then i went to the internet settings on the Ps3 and tried the internet connection check and it worked! I hope you have some help of this.

The PlayStation Network is down at the moment. Sony Entertainment is working on this. There is nothing wrong with your system.
From the PSN - "While we are investigating the cause of the Network outage, we wanted to alert you that it may be a full day or two before we're able to get the service completely back up and running. Thank you very much for your patience while we work to resolve this matter."

If the PS3 wont accept your WEP or WPA password it is because it is not the one you chose when you set up the network. The first thing you should do is temporarily disable security on your network and try to connect with your PS3, just to be sure there is not a problem with your network.

If that works, enable either WEP or WPA encryption and choose a new password.

My PS3 Doesn't seem to have online capabilities??

Mine had that problem too. It is probably the area where your internet is. U have bad service. Let it sit for a few days, turn it on and mess around with the cable plugged into the wall. Mine worked after a couple days after the **** WAS plugged in saying "no ethernet is plugged in" No worries

Going online with PS3

It will be the firewall on the router. You need to set it top standard, which will allow you connect your ps3 to the internet.

Need help with ps3 internet hook up

The ps3 wifi is very finicky --
While the ps3 scans for a hotspot turn the router off then on so the router aquires the ps3.
Goto settings
Goto network settings
Goto network connection, select enable
Goto Internet connection settings just below internet connection-
Push yes when it says you may be disconnected
Select wired or wireless
For wireless use scan or enter manually
Follow on screen instructions.
Once that is set up return to main menu and go to network near the right
Then once in the internet browser press triangle and goto file and enter the internet address you would like visit.
If all else fail use the ethernet cable to attach it to your laptop. Then run network setup on the laptop and add the ps3.
